comment How to fix PCSX2 lag?
A bit late to the party, but an important note: the age of the graphics card alone may not be indicative. Different GPU architectures and even driver differences can make a big change. I've heard of plenty of issues where an upgrade actually made things work more poorly, or introduced new rendering bugs.

comment PlayStation 4 video drops when connected to Dell monitor via HDMI-to-DisplayPort adapter
I'm only just seeing this question...I haven't actually tried a setup like this but professionally I see tons of problems with lousy DisplayPort adapters. I'd bet money that's all it was and bet a good active converter (even unpowered, although that might work better doing the conversion the other direction) would have fixed matters, or in the worst case (since it sounds like there aren't many of these) going to DVI instead...HDMI to DVI cables are quite plentiful and I'm assuming a monitor with DP in also supports DVI in. And some newer DP 1.2 monitors can be...touchy.

comment Can I copy “not-on-PSN” games from PC back to my Vita?
I seem to recall hearing you can still play them if you have them, so I think they shouldn't care if you copy them on and off. I have no way to test this, though.

comment Identify this game with darklings please
Well, I'm 100%, so I'll answer it.

comment Why do the Galbadian soldiers not question Selphie's presence in the Missile Base?
Well, Selphie's also rather petite. My assumption was always just that we don't see female soldiers because it was simply easier to use the same models over and over again.

comment Why do the Galbadian soldiers not question Selphie's presence in the Missile Base?
I don't think it's ever addressed...but if SeeDs can be female why would the regular military be gender-segregated?

comment Can Different Shiny Pokemon of the Same Species be Different Colours?
@crystal - People datamining the games would have seen it long ago. I think you must be mistaken (or there was some kind of super weird palette error with your cart?)

comment Which recruitable characters lock out other recruitment choices?
Also probably worth noting that you can get all the characters simultaneously if you do New Game +, right? (Takes three playthroughs though)

comment Is the “Armoury” bonus XP for other classes level-dependent or a fixed 50%?
The next time I don't have rested xp I'll have to check for sure...I have always just understood it to be a flat 50% though.

comment Why are the higher level elemental spells in Final Fantasy named Fira, Firaga, etc
FFVII had room for long-form names but still used numbers...I think VIII was the first to stop doing that.

comment Does the A press to “X is attacking Y” need to be on-beat to initiate a combo attack?
I don't deny that they're helpful, but the game is not so difficult as to require them was my point. Sound desync issues are just sort of a fact of life in emulators though :(

comment Does the A press to “X is attacking Y” need to be on-beat to initiate a combo attack?
Yeah, it's apparently just really difficult to do this on an emulator for internal timing reasons. (I played the entire game through without ever bothering with combos ever at all, for what it's worth - they're not even remotely necessary)

comment What is an AR Marker? How do I start the game?
Yeah, as worded it sounded like it was completely unskippable, which would be REALLY perplexing.

Followup: why on earth does a turn-based RPG require AR?

comment KH1 Traverse Town Candles?
I can confirm that you absolutely can do it with just Blizzard. It may help if you wait for them all to reset if you mess it up.

comment Is there a way to skip the intro screens in American McGee's Alice?
Any other way to accomplish this in the console ports that you know of (since this obviously isn't an option)?

comment Ammo lost with 2 SMGs?
No, I'm not positive, since I haven't played this game in years. That's why I posted a comment and not an answer.

comment Ammo lost with 2 SMGs?
Well, you can fire them both at once, so "useless" is arguable I guess. In terms of ammo capacity, I guess so.

comment Ammo lost with 2 SMGs?
Don't have it installed so I can't check, but I think I remember that the ammo is not per-gun. That is, the amount of ammo you see is simply how much SMG ammo you're carrying.

comment Why does the chat say “Stormwind is Under Attack!”?
I don't play WoW, but reading this answer my followup question would be this: how long does it take those NPCs to respawn if they go down (ie, when should I bother coming back)?
